We are offering to post candidates bios on the LCCEF website.  Please keep the Bios to 250 words or less.

There will be a forum held November 20th.  The Candidates will be given a few minutes to promote themselves and share why they will make a good officer.


Here are some tips on campaigning

  • must be done on candidate’s own time
  • creating candidate’s own website is legitimate
  • running on a slate is legitimate
  • candidate must pay for their printed materials (can use P&G)
  • current officers cannot use LCCEF logo or other LCCEF branding or resources.  (even if you created it!)
